Sunday recitals at the Fundação Americano

Sun 15 Dec 2013

This event has finished

In São Paulo's hilly western suburbs of Morumbi, the striking Modernist house at the heart of the Fundação Maria Luisa e Oscar Americano is the setting for a fortnightly Sunday morning classical music recital. The house was once the home of well-to-do São Paulo engineer and impresario Oscar Americano, who founded the Foundation after the death of his wife, Maria Luisa.

A bright room on the ground floor, with space for around 100 visitors, hosts a rotating programme of guest pianists, singers and string quartets. Stay on for a simple lunch or afternoon tea in the Foundation's café afterwards, a wander in the 75,000 sq metres of parkland, or a nose around the house, where the impressive collection of art, furniture and objects – augmented considerably since its beginnings as the Americanos' private art collection – spans the history of Brazil since colonial times.
